[07:19:57] <Bronz|work> Good mornin'
[07:21:01] <Aria> Hi
[07:25:45] <Bronz|work> How goes?
[07:26:28] <Aria> Are console games terrible now?
[07:26:47] <Aria> BF WW1 apparently at like 40FPS
[07:27:52] <Bronz|work> 40?
[07:27:56] <Bronz|work> that's a weird number.
[07:28:11] <Bronz|work> Are they assuming a 120FPS monitor?
[07:28:14] <Bronz|work> Because that could work...
[07:28:22] <Aria> I mean its unlocked targeting 60
[07:28:42] <Aria> But based on the few seconds of footage I saw it's so far from 60 that they really shouldn't have bothered
[07:35:24] <Aria> Are shooting permits not a thing in Japan?
[07:36:17] <Aria> How come all these music videos can afford to shoot at the Shibuya crossing, despite looking very cheaply made
[07:36:57] <Bronz|work> Maybe there is a Shibya crossing set that's really cheap to rent out somewhere?
[07:37:10] <Aria> But there are a million 'extras'
[07:37:26] <Bronz|work> Maybe the rule is that if you're not too disruptive, it's ok.
[07:37:33] <Bronz|work> Or maybe Shibuya is fine to shoot at?
[07:37:59] <Bronz|work> If only there was a large repository of information where we could look such things up!
[07:38:33] <Aria> That would be nice.
[07:38:48] <Aria> I should invent a product that serves that niche
[07:39:27] <Bronz|work> Maybe a book with everything in it?
[07:39:48] <Bronz|work> Maybe like a... "Omni-o-pedia"!
[07:39:50] <Aria> Maybe like a building where there are a lot of different books, and you can read them as long as you're inside the building, and you pay an entrance fee like an amusement park
[07:40:11] <Bronz|work> Oh that sounds cool!
[07:40:25] <Bronz|work> What if you have like, professionals, who generally know what's in the books.
[07:40:32] <Bronz|work> So they can reccomend you books?
[07:40:39] <Aria> Why not just a sign?
[07:40:55] <Bronz|work> I guess that would work..
[07:41:26] <Aria> I'll call it "The public library", because it's like your private library of books, but since you're renting access, it's not private
[07:49:21] <Bronz|work> It sounds like a pretty good idea.
[07:49:28] <Bronz|work> But not all books can be read in a day, right?
[07:49:46] <Bronz|work> Should we allow people to buy the books, so they can bring it home?
[07:50:51] <Aria> Ah, attract costumers with the shared book library, then upsell on book purchases
[07:51:41] <Bronz|work> In practice small on-street location shooting (three people or less without a tripod and lights) may not need to obtain road use permits and road occupation permits.
[07:51:46] <Bronz|work> Src: http://www.locationbox.metro.tokyo.jp
[07:51:58] <Bronz|work> So it looks like you do need a permit
[07:52:09] <Bronz|work> It costs about ¥3,000 per one application.
[07:52:18] <Bronz|work> So it's just really cheap.
[07:52:20] <Aria> So you don't need to blur faces?
[07:52:21] <Aria> Oh.
[07:52:26] <Aria> Oh okay well that's nothing
[07:52:57] <Bronz|work> It does say that if you cause disruption, you need a seperate permit
[07:53:11] <Bronz|work> But if people can walk around you, and use the road, then you can get away with this.
[08:13:16] <Aria> ...YouTube was serving me a 720 video when it was available in 2160
[08:13:20] <Aria> Why?
[08:13:48] <Aria> It's not having any problems buffering or anything
[08:15:22] <Bronz|work> Maybe it thought it did an extra good job encoding that one.
[08:15:56] <Aria> Oh you Monster Hunder Double Cross coming to Switch, did you hear?
[08:16:44] <Bronz|work> I hadn't.
[08:16:46] <Bronz|work> that's cool.
[08:17:18] <Bronz|work> The switch is a perfect mon-hon machine.
[08:17:46] <Aria> Yes but also its not like 200x100px

[08:21:13] <Aria> Hi again
[08:22:04] <Bronz|work> Hi
[08:25:58] <Aria> ... Nekopara, a porn game on Steam with no gameplay what so ever (visual novel) has sold 1 million units
[08:26:13] <Aria> (Also they earned 1 million on kickstarter)
[08:26:14] <Bronz|work> That's a lot of units

[10:50:44] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup.
[10:51:24] <Apsup> Hello.
[12:46:10] <Bronz|work> Wanna see my wip snake game?
[12:47:54] <Apsup> yes no maybe?
[12:49:55] <Bronz|work> https://bronzdragon.github.io
[12:50:13] <Bronz|work> If you're wondering why the snake doesn't move... I haven't made that bit yet.
[12:52:58] <Bronz|work> Cool, right?
[12:52:59] <Apsup> It's very wip then.
[12:53:24] <Apsup> Technically it moves. The background clearly gives out an illusion of movement through space.
[12:53:36] <Bronz|work> Ah, true.
[12:54:45] <Bronz|work> Also, if you look closely (or at the source), you can see some text behind the game in the upper-left corner.
[12:54:57] <Bronz|work> I can't figure out how to make that appear below the game...
